Well in 1981 Metallica formed from Lars Ulrich putting an ad in the local paper James Hetfield saw and wala! Metallica was born Dave Muistaine were friends of James so he joined to there was Metallica's first bassist to Ron McGovney but was harrassed by Dave and was replaced by Cliff Burton but later Dave was fired in New York,New York. James, Lars, and Cliff woke him up and told him he was fired for drinking problems he was sent home but they new a guy named Kirk Hammett who they new was a guitar player so he saved up for a ticket and flew there to audition needless to say he was born for that audition...
